I'm not a regular on this or any other site..but do lots of research in medical journals and such. I wanted to bounce a few ideas around. I live in AZ and spent the last two years finding quality care that I could depend on only to find out that my s/o and I are going to have to do a job transfer to San Antonio by the end of the year. My pain clinic is so familiar with me that they all know me etc. and told me I better prepare for a wake up call when I move due to the whole FDA/DEA stuff going on with Michael Jackson etc. I've also read that the FDA wants to put a lid on making all our Vic's, perc's, oxy's etc. You name it, they are coming down like vultures on doctor's and clinics. I wonder what the best way of finding a quality doctor might be in a new city? How should a present myself? Sometimes I feel like a criminal when I ask for pain meds and I'm literally up at night worrying that I won't find someone who will work with me due to the fact that fibromyalgia is so new. I take Lyrica, Fentanyl, and Flexeril just to name a few. I'm still in the process of finding what works, and now having to move on top of it has me really spooked...any suggestions? Should I write to a doctor and send a mini "resume'??
TY in advance, Wendy

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
